BASILICA FARM & FLEA
Born Thanksgiving Weekend 2013 as the Anti-Black Friday big sister goddess, Basilica Farm & Flea is part timeless flea market and farmer’s market, part 21st century craft and design fair. Each market features a diverse group of regional vendors selling their wares alongside locally-sourced, farm-fresh foods. The markets embody love of vintage and recycled, locally-sourced agriculture and the beautifully handmade. With over 10,000 square feet of raw space, Basilica Farm & Flea is the only market of this scale in the region, and is an integral part of Basilica Hudson’s arts and cultural programs.
Applicants must be independent artisans and designers, or collectors of high quality vintage wares. Our focus is on those who are local to the Hudson Valley, but applications from makers across the broader area are welcome.
By participating in Basilica Farm & Flea, vendors directly support Basilica Hudson’s mission to foster sustainable community. Proceeds from admissions and vendor fees support ongoing operations for the organization, and allow Basilica Hudson to continue to develop and present its programs, offering important platforms for avant garde and emerging artists, local chefs, farmers, artisans and other talents to engage and exchange with new audiences.
Our next BFF, Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market 2018, will be held Mothers Day Weekend, Saturday May 12, 10am-6pm & Sunday May 13th 10am-6pm .
Applications are due Feb 27th & full vendor list will be released March 27th.
